Peace...



www.allposters.co.uk

Father, Mother, God,

Thank you for your presence during the hard and mean days.
For then we have you to lean upon.

Thank you for your presence during the bright and sunny days.
For then we can share that which we have with those who have less.

And thank you for your presence during the Holy Days.
For then we are able to celebrate you and our families and our friends

For those who have no voice, we ask you to speak.

For those who feel unworthy, we ask you to pour your love out in waterfalls of tenderness.

For those who live in pain, we ask you to bathe them in the river of your healing.

For those who are lonely, we ask you to keep them company.

For those who are depressed, we ask you to shower upon them the light of hope.

Dear Creator, You, the borderless sea of substance, we ask you to give to all the world that which we need most.....PEACE.

Stash busting



I have a lot of yarn and a good deal of it seems to be single balls which have caught my eye for one reason or another.  So in the spirit of continuing the sorting-out ready for moving, I decided that the yarn stash really needs to be given a serious trim!  I thought that it would be good to use up some of those odd balls making blankets for a charity, and whilst doing a search for a charity looking for blankets I came across Blankets for the Homeless.  They are looking for folk to crochet/knit squares or strips, or to donate yarn.  The squares are then sewn together by volunteers to make into blankets of about 4' x 6'.    


I found quite a lot of smaller oddments of yarn in my stash, and decided to use up those first before moving on to the single balls.  To give a bit of unity to the squares, I crocheted the last round of each one using grey yarn.  I also used the grey yarn to join the squares together, and to make a narrow border around the completed blanket.


And here is the finished article!  It may not be the most attractive blanket in the world, but was made with love and will hopefully help to keep someone in need warm 😊
